Welcome to 4th Grade!
We are so happy to have you as part of our team! It has been a busy week getting to know your children along with many new routines and expectations for this school year. Students are doing an amazing job adjusting to these changes and we are so very proud of them!
Below are the videos that Mr. B created to share with students on part of the new routines and expectations. Enjoy!
This year based on feedback from families, the district has decided that all grades, K-12, will be using the learning platforms of Blackboard and Google Classroom. Since school started on Tuesday, we have been working with your child on learning these platforms. Yes, there have been kinks but we are all learning how to work through these problems together.
The purpose of Blackboard is to provide lessons, materials, and resources. The purpose of Google classroom is to turn assignments in and receive feedback from teachers.
For apps on the iPad, these are the following apps that we will be using daily:
These apps are ones that we will be using throughout the year.
We have been completing “assignments” and then practicing turning them in on Google classroom. You will see them listed in your child’s Google Classroom, but know that none of these are really being graded at this time. As the year progresses, and we get more into content, Google Classroom will be where students will turn in their assignments to be graded and where teachers will be providing feedback.
One thing we are trying to figure out right now is what student iPads are doing. Some things work on some iPads and not others. One thing we would like to make sure of that the iPads are up to date with the current iOS system. So if you could check your child’s iPad, that would help.
